have the debt ceiling, the europeans will talk about how you can make that binding. in the u.s., the concern is much more whether you can lift it in time in order not to put too much break on the economy. now, the u.s. economy has bottomed out, it's coming back, and i think sooner or later the u.s. has to face the fiscal issue not just in the sense of delaying adjustment but really making a credible adjustment. >> this is very reminiscent of the conversations we were having a year ago about europe. from the outside it looked obvious, have to get your house in order, you know what the decisions are likely to be, you have to just do them. now i hear everybody in europe saying you know what you need to do, you just need to do it. >> they were particularly amaze t at the latest decision to suspend the ceiling once again. don't just go tying it to this congressional pay. instead of just simply doing it. >> right. coming up with gimmicks and -- >> well, shackling, shackling something onto the side of it. >> right. well, they said this time if they don't do it they're going to stop
and the debt ceiling or passing the american's jobs act to get americans back to work, that requires we the people and why the speech was so powerful on monday. it's not about me the government. he's not talking about the government, he's talking about citizens coming together and putting pressure on elected officials to do what's right to help our fellow citizens and i think that that is the unifying message that we all need to take away from monday. it wasn't necessarily a partisan speech, it was a progressive speech, that's true. >> a very liberal speech. >> he was a very american unifying message. >> kelly: angela. the final word. >> in his speech, the government is for the people, by the people. so she's right. we have the responsibility to state our grievances and we need call on members of congress and they're not doing what they're supposed to do, vote him out. >> kelly: and we thank you ladies for joining us and sharing your insights and perspective where things stand with the president being the unifier in chief or the divider in chief, but we, the people, should step up and t
of the people i talked to do not talk in terms of fiscal cliffs and debt ceilings. they don't even talk about monthly jobs report. what they talk about is their school -- their kids' school performance. can i balance might tack -- ken i balance my checkbook? can i pay off the bills? the mortgage? a lot of our political leaders talk about things in terms that aren't relevant. the outcome might be relevant but they are not relevant to where most people are in our states, cities, and communities across the country. but we give you a couple of examples. when i first ran for governor i used to tell a story about something i started doing 25 years ago. when i was first working i would pack a lunch every day. it is the same blunt ipad most days in the same -- in the state capitol today. i like to think i did it because i was frugal. my wife would say it was because i was cheap. either way i bring the same lunch. it was great when i worked at the red cross, when i was in the county executive. i put it in a cooler and i eat it when i am in the car, the capital, anywhere else. i told that story when i
scheme. now that the debt ceiling is gone, that has become their plan a, the best shot at getting spending cuts. the problem is that their plan a has the most boring name of really any policy in washington, the sequester. but you need to know about it to follow what is going to happen in the next couple of months in d.c. i am not going to use the "s" word, i'm going to call it big, dumb, very, very liberal, friendly spending cuts. but before we rename it you need to hear our speaker, john boehner on the subject. >> the deadline, obviously, is the sequester, have you had any conversation with the president or harry reid about that so far? >> i have not. the sequester is going to go into effect on march first unless there are cuts and reforms to get us on a plan to balance the budget in the next ten years, it is as simple as that. >> mr. boehner told the board that the sequester is as much leverage as we're going to get, quote. he meant it to sound reassuring to conservatives, like that is fine, we don't need the debt ceiling, we have the big spending cuts, democrats will never allo
